Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) Treatments at Beer Dermatology in West Palm Beach, FL and Jupiter , FL


Photodynamic therapy, also known as PDT, is a light treatment that reduces active acne, and even some precancerous lesions and early-stage skin cancers. It is FDA-approved, with proven efficacy and minimal downtime. If you have actinic keratoses (AK) or acne that has not responded well to other types of treatments, PDT could be a viable option to explore.


Actinic keratoses are pre-cancerous lesions caused by UV ray damage to the skin, appearing as rough or scaly patches of skin. They are more common in fair-skinned people who have experienced a lot of sun exposure. If left untreated, actinic keratoses could turn into squamous cell carcinoma, a type of skin cancer. Bald men are especially susceptible to AK.
